Classical 5 Element Acupuncture

Classical 5 Element acupuncture is a system of medicine that takes a deep survey into the soul and emotion of where your imbalance lies. This lineage of acupuncture reconnects your body with nature and allows you to heal by restoring the physical and emotional vitality that thrives when you are in alignment with your highest potential of health. It reconnects your entire being with the blueprint for healing that already exists within.

When we feel stuck in certain areas of our lives--work, relationships, and spiritual growth--we are unable to access the clarity needed to move forward and flourish. This creates a myriad of physical and emotional issues.

Here are some examples of how energy blockages can manifest in our bodies and spirits:

  • Depression, apathy, and feeling unexcited about your day to day life.

  • A panicked feeling in your chest. A knot in your stomach. Tension in your shoulders. Noticing these sensations anytime you do something that doesn’t set your soul on fire. 

  • Not being able to sleep. Dreaming about things that are stressful. Or feeling like you want to sleep all of the time.

  • If you are a female, your menstrual cycles are painful, irregular, and make you feel out of control. You have PCOS or endometriosis. You are having trouble getting pregnant.

  • Feeling trapped by time, feeling like there isn't enough time, feeling like you wish you had more time.

  • Observing the ways that others are living/working and wishing you could have their lifestyle, freedom, creativity, and energy.

  • Catching every cold, flu, and virus that comes your way.

  • The Grass is Greener Syndrome: Feeling like your job, your partner, your home, or your life would be better if it was different, or if it was someone else, or if it was somewhere else, or if YOU were someone else.

Your first visit is two hours long. Together we will discus your health history and your life history, and a physical exam will follow. I will clear you of major energetic blocks, and then you’ll receive an acupuncture treatment. We will also discus ways you can shift your diet, exercise, schedule, and other routines to optimize your health. When you return for your follow up treatments, we will spend about an hour together. I’ll ask you about your day and your week, what shifts you are noticing in your body and mind, and we’ll make a plan on what we can continue to build on, as well as what needs more balancing.

You will likely notice some big changes within your first two treatments, but it’s important to remember that acupuncture is not a magic pill. You will need to commit to weekly appointments for 3-4 weeks, and after that we’ll discus the best treatment frequency for your needs.

I could not be more excited to introduce you to this medicine, and to help your body and soul remember how to heal itself.
